Josephine L. Woodward,
IN September of the year 1906 rumors of a coming war
with a foreign nation were heard, so 1910 gathered
recruits from all corners of the land at Fort Lasell,
furnished them with arms, and drilled them inces-
santly, so that when the time came they would be
able to render their faithful service to the mother
country. For a year nothing came out of these rumors,
and peace was yet reigning. But in 1907 the great
nation of '08, seeing what an enterprising nation '10
was, and foreseeing its coming greatness, sought for
an alliance with this nation. In order to do this a
conference was held at Karandon and a treaty of peace
drawn up between these two nations. The rest of
this year passed by very pleasantly and uneventfully.
At the commencement of the next year this nation,
convinced of its great literary talents and abilities,
decided it would revive the custom of bringing
forth a book of notable events, which was always of
great interest to the other nations. But now the na-
tion of "Faculty," which had hitherto remained in
the background, stepped forth and laid a restraining
hand upon this most enthusiastic nation; but so con-
vinced were they of their capabilities that they soon
won their point by a compromise. Many dreary con-
ditions were imposed, but these seemingly insurmount-
able barriers were soon gotten rid of and towards
the end of May these volumes appeared, bound in
blue and gold, the colors of the nation.
In the spring of the year 1909, one balmy evening
there was great excitement in and about Fort Deer
House. Nations '09 and '11, armed with pails of
water, were guarding the Fort, for some 'Her having
seen a perfectly innocent '10er strolling around in
this vicinity had immediately started the rumor that
the TO's were going to lay siege and burn up the Fort.
In order to reassure them, the '10's paraded before
the Fort unarmed and then quietly went into barracks.
In the fall of the following year this nation of '10
had greatly increased its population and also had
annexed new territory, that of Pickard House, and
another most important acquisition was that of Crows'
Nest. On December 17 all dispersed and visited
foreign nations until January 9, when all returned and
now are working hard and looking forward to the time
when they will be annexed to that great nation, the
O-o-e-la-dan, e-la-den, e-la-den,
O-o-e-la-den, e-la-den 1910.
Through all the different years, 1910 has stood the test,
And she needs no clarion praises to be ranked among
So instead of idly boasting of the glories she'll attain,
Let us all unite in toasting our class of 1910.
Now Seniors gathered here, unite in one great cheer,
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hail ! Alma Mater, to you, O glorious Lasell,
Faithful shall we be and true to you we love so well;
And whene'er fleeting time drifts us all apart,
May we e'er be united, each heart to heart,
When rallied round the flag of 1910.
Let us all sing out pride three rousing cheers again.
Let us unfurl far and wide the flag of 1910;
Let us rally and show to the world just who
Are those who are wearing the gold and blue,
The colors of our 1910.

W$t €bolutton of tfte Junior Cte
IN the dawn of the Twentieth Century, Father Cul-
ture, since modern society was deteriorating in
its tastes, decided to serve to the world, in his cus-
tomary centennial banquet, a rare dessert, notable,
memorable. Its preparation he entrusted to Dame
Enlightenment, who at once set out to find suitable
Not, however, until the fall of 1907, did she discover
in Auburndale, Massachusetts, the requisites for the
concoction of the delicacy. Selecting ten choice and
well-assorted rosebuds, combining all the qualities
demanded by the appetizing dainty in question, she
put them into her Concentration mixing-bowl and
added to them five tablespoonfuls each of Ambition,
Enterprise and Perseverance; quickly stirred these
together with a Sophomore spoon, added a well-beaten
Constitution, and set the whole a-simmering over a
slow fire in the Lasell Range. Then began the cook-
ing — a long, slow and exceedingly delicate process,
in the course of which occurred an accident or two,
which her skill kept from proving fatal to the dish; for
instance, on the addition of a teaspoonful of Essence
of Metaphor and Simile, the kettle immediately and
resentfully boiled over, some of the mixture unfor-
tunately spilling into the Preparatory saucepan which
bubbled joyously and vociferously thereupon.
When the mixture had simmered a year, taking it
from the fire, she drained off all superfluous juice, lest
the buds become over-soft, doubled the respective
amounts of the condiments first added, quickened the
fire with her Daring poker, put on more fuel, and set
the saucepan back to cook further. Now the con-
tents began to boil merrily, and for the first time
showed promising signs. Fumes of Originality began
to issue thence and mingle appetizingly with the
Friendship odors which came steamingly from the
Senior pudding, cooking beside it. Then there formed
in the kettle a huge bubble of Dramatic talent, Avhich
presently broke, liberating, with much comfortable
hissing, a savory play. But strangely enough, when
the fumes from this bubble came in contact with the
Junior stew, on the other side of the range, the result
was remarkable — the stew, boiling no more, settled
down into a heavy hum of a simmer.
The cooking progressed; the end of the second year
drew nigh, and the cook must make further use of
her exquisite art ere the dish would be worthy of Father
Culture's table. Other spices were added, and a gen-
erous quantity of sugar, several Senior "crushes,"
gave a "tang" to the whole. Then came the addition
of five ounces of Ingenuity and a season of very rapid
boiling. When almost done it received a generous
cupful of Unity of Purpose, as a final flavoring (the
purpose — nay, the achievement — of outwitting the
Sophomores). Not in vain had Dame Enlightenment
added to her exquisite dish Originality and Enterprise.
Consternation reigned on the cook-stove one wintry
night in January, and it has been rumored that one
kettle actually boiled over in its efforts to discover
just what happened at the Woodland Park Hotel.
But far be it from the writer to divulge promiscuously
such weighty secrets.
The dessert was now complete. It was exhibited
—still in the mould, however — at the Woodland Park
Hotel, to the admiring Seniors, this splendid dessert,
the Junior Class of Lasell. Was there ever another
class its equal? It now remains only to take it from
the mould, garnish it with cap and gown and serve
it hot on the Class Day platter in June of 1911 — the
consummation of the combined skill of Culture and
Enlightenment, the finest, most toothsome dainty
that old Lasell has ever known — its Juniors!
As strangers once we came together,
To live here at old and dear Lasell.
Now the ties can never sever,
But will bind us firm and well.
And if in time those ties should weaken,
Since fate we never can foretell,
'Twill e'er be our guide and beacon
That we were Juniors at Lasell.
School days are flying swiftly by us,
They are gone e'er we know they are here.
And so while we still have them nigh us,
We'll rejoice for each joy and each tear.
May the actions of our daily lives be blest,
So that every one of us can spell
Success, as we "Aim for the highest,"
While we are Juniors at Lasell.

GCfje Junior ^roptjecp
IN the year 1920 there was a reunion of the Junior
Class of 1910 at Lasell. Dr. Winslow had pur-
chased a fine new airship for the school, and as
it came from the Pacific coast he kindly placed it at
As it happened, Marion Ordway was the first to
be called for. Our former class president was teach-
ing Household Economics in a large boarding school
in California. Elise Taggart, who resided in the same
city, had gained great fame by her clever child im-
personations. From there we flew up to a ranch near
Seattle. This was the summer home of Marie Hibbing,
who was a partner in a big "Paving" concern out
there. Then we had to hurry to meet an incoming
steamer. Among the first to disembark was Helen
Thirkield, who had been in Siberia trying to reform
the criminals. She had become very much interested
in her work there, but when asked why she left it,
she said she could not possibly afford to miss the
reunion of such an illustrious class. We were very
much surprised to hear that Jane Parsons was the
stewardess of that same liner.
We then started on our journey across the continent,
stopping at various towns both large and small to
pick up the different girls. Near a little town in Col-
orado we looked down and saw a bright sunbonnet
flapping in the wind, and were curious to know who
was feeding chickens on the pretty little farm. As
we dipped lower we found it to be our classmate,
Charline Billington. She insisted upon finishing the
feeding of her chickens before she could go on. At
Denver we found Caroline Marsh, now a prominent
leader in the cause of Woman Suffrage. Georgia
Boswell had grown so accustomed to hoarding money
that it had now become a habit and we found her a
regular second Hetty Green. It was with much
difficulty that we persuaded Virginia Lee to dismiss
her school a week early, in order to come East with
us in the airship. From her we learned where Alma
Bendixen, now the president of a large woman's club,
was to be found, and that the large "Kauffman Pretzel
Factories" belonged to none other than our friend
Edna,- who insisted on overseeing all the work her-
self. In Omaha we were greeted by Nina Dietz, who
was at the head of a large decorating establishment.
She had been separated from Gladys ever since they
left school, but it seemed quite natural to see them
together once more. Gladys had just ended a very
successful season as a chorus girl in one of the popular
musical comedies. Indeed she had been promised the
leading part in the fall. Marion Shinn, still enjoying
single blessedness, was very busy editing a dictionary
in opposition to Webster. We were not surprised
to note that more than half the dictionary consisted
of a slang appendix. Amie Wessel, now a Methodist
minister's wife, was loth to leave her flock of eight
little ones and her sewing circle, but we finally suc-
ceeded in persuading her to do so. We stopped at
one little town to lay in some provisions from Edith
Palmer's fruit stand.
We were met in Chicago by Mildred Renwick, our
lady journalist, who insisted upon a full account of
the trip so far, for the Chicago American. We found
several others of our girls here. Vera Bradley was a
coach for all kinds of entertainments. Edna Felch
was the head nurse in Dr. Katherine Pellet's large
private hospital. Ruth Butterworth was the head
bookkeeper in a large wholesale house. Alma Dumn
never could get enough to eat while at Lasell, so she
had set up a restaurant of her own where she could
always satisfy her hunger. Kathleen Knight had a
milliner's shop on Michigan Avenue and Gladys Law-
ton was a cartoonist for one of the principal news-
papers. We found Marion Davis surrounded with
babies of all sizes. She was the head of Chicago's
largest Day Nursery. As it was necessary to stay
in Chicago over night, as many as possible stayed at
a boarding house kept by Helen Lewars. The next
morning as we were preparing to depart we saw a
Salvation Army lassie standing on the street corner
and upon looking more closely we were much sur-
prised to recognize in her our old yell master, Edna
MacDonald. She was able to help us find Frieda
Mayer, who was telling fortunes in a Dime Museum,
and Louise, who had gained quite a name by her
splendid playing in various recitals.
Again we started eastward, stopping now and then
to pick up our remaining classmates. Marion Joslin
was touring the country as a lecturer, her watchword
being "Laugh and Grow Fat." We came across Helen
Sayre going from house to house as a book agent, and
Jeanette Ritter as the president of the "Society for
the Suppression of All Unnecessary Noises." Mar-
garet Jones was very busy persuading the old maids
of our party to advertise in her "Matrimonial Bulletin,"
for she was now the president of a big matrimonial
When we arrived in Boston we met May Martin-
court who had just come in from her flying trip across
the continent. She was the French maid on the Twen-
tieth Century Limited, and it did not seem to us that
she had grown any since we saw her last. Beth
Brandow, we found, had become the editor of the
"Pretty Girl Papers" in the Ladies' Home Journal.
Before coming out to Auburndale we went down to
meet a steamer which was just landing. Grace Harvey,
with the party of girls whom she had been chaperoning
abroad, ran up to greet us and was quickly followed
by Doris Powers, who had been studying art in Paris.
In a few minutes Katherine Kelly came across the
gangplank with her husband, who was a missionary
in India. It was in Boston that we went to Grand
Opera where we all felt proud of our giggling Fan, who
had won many laurels as a star opera singer.
By this time the airship was pretty well filled, so
we flew out towards Auburndale and dear old Lasell.
The first one to welcome us was the preceptress, Helen
Frick, and close behind her was Barbara Dennen who
was living in Auburndale, although she was the organ-
ist in one of the large churches of Boston. We were
shown over the fine new buildings by Marjorie Winslow,
who was now a very bright and attractive child of ten.
We were especially pleased to notice that the new
gym was plenty large enough for drill, and that there
was a separate building for the chemistry laboratory.
Several of the former teachers remained, and in spite
of the many changes we still felt very - much at

LTHOUGH Sophomores from time immemorial
have been laughed at and ridiculed because of
their conceit, surely even the correct Juniors
could not conduct themselves with more modesty or
be less assuming than we, considering the many achieve-
ments of which we might well be proud. It will be
remembered that when we began our career it was as
the first class of Preps that had ever organized, and
as Freshmen we accomplished results never before
credited to that class. Was it not we, as Freshmen,
who first announced our class officers; who suggested
to the Sophomores the feasibility of having class ban-
ners by flaunting ours before their astonished eyes,
and who outwitted the same Sophomores when they
had planned to serenade, we having arrived upon the
scene of action first?
And now that we are Sophomores we have not fallen
below our standard. You notice that we managed
to serenade before the Juniors, and thus raised our
record even a notch higher. It is always best to
be "a little bit too soon than just a little bit too
It was a great pleasure for us to have our sisters,
the Seniors, with us on our hay-ride, that event which
so astonished the Juniors, who never thought us capa-
ble of planning anything of the sort.
We cannot express in words the love and esteem
that we cherish for our sisters, but in being ever ready
to do the slightest service for them, we have hoped
to show at least a part of it.
It would not do to dwell at length upon the past
successes of the Sophomores, for we put those aside
as only natural. We are formed in battle-line, facing
the foe, and not until the victory is won, and as gradu-
ates of our dear Alma Mater, we lay our laurels by,
will one of us desert the ranks to which we have pledged
our best, or one face, dismayed at the task before,

THE Freshman Class has been invited to insert her
history in the Allerlie but she can hardly do that
for she began her being less than six months ago
and as yet her greatest efforts have only enabled her to
take a few faltering steps.
The class of 1913 came into existence in September,
1909, and great was the excitement on that autumn
evening when we held our first real class meeting under
lock and key, in Mrs. Martin's room. There was, how-
ever, no interference from our friends (?) the Soph-
omores, as they evidently accepted it as being in the
natural order of things. As class colors, royal purple
and gold were chosen, for the best is none too good for
a class which promises so brilliant a future.
Though as yet we have accomplished but little, it
must be remembered that our experience at the best
has been but a short one and that:
"Heaven is not reached at a single bound,
But we build the ladder by which we rise
From lowly earth to the vaulted skies,
And we mount its summit round by round."
Step by step we are climbing upward and with a
"Princess" as our leader we cry,
"Long live the class of 1913."

'The Real Thing.
THE big red mansion seemed unusually still and
lonesome to Elizabeth, and no matter how hard
she tried, she could not think of what would be
interesting to do, — so, cuddling up on the window-seat,
and flattening her nose against the glass, she gazed out
upon the passers-by, and wondered where they were
going in all the rain and mud.
People did not call Elizabeth pretty; in fact her nurse
had said that she was exceedingly plain and not the
least bit like her beautiful mamma. But really she was
far from plain, for the child's very soul shone out from
the big, wistful, blue eyes, and a sweet, trustful ex-
pression about the corners of her mouth made her en-
tirely lovable. Her hair, parted in the middle, was
drawn back smoothly from her forehead, and hung
down her back in two heavy bronze-gold plaits.
Elizabeth's mother had died when she was born, and
her father had scarcely been seen to smile during the
twelve long years that followed her death. The little
daughter was brought up under the care of the house-
keeper and her old nurse, and since she had never been
allowed the companionship of other children, she was
quaintly old-fashioned in her ways. Never having
known a mother's love, the child did not now miss it,
as she otherwise might, yet she was vaguely conscious
of a certain emptiness in her life, of something missing;
and although she had been taught to be patient, she
often felt pitifully lonesome, and longed for love.
Poor child! this had been denied her, for her father saw
in her only an awkward, homely little girl with reel hair
and sad eyes. She was unattractive, and he wasted no
time with her. It was pitiful how timidly affectionate
she was, doing her best to make the stern man smile
or pay her a little attention. She had heard the serv-
ants say that the master did not love little Miss Eliz-
abeth because she was so plain and did not resemble
her lovely mother. She could not believe this, for in
all the story-books fathers always loved their little
girls and did all they could to make them happy.
This afternoon Elizabeth was particularly lonely,
more so it seemed than ever before, and growing tired
of watching the passers-by, she got up from her seat
and wandered slowly through the empty halls. Pres-
ently she came upon a picture well known to her, and
here she stopped to look at it once more. It was the
life-size portrait of a beautiful young woman in white
satin. Her red-gold hair was dressed high upon her
head, and the bluest of eyes smiled down into Eliza-
beth's. To-day they seemed to be kinder, tenderer,
than they had ever been before, and they cheered the
child's lonely heart, so that she smiled as she drew
close to the picture and kissed the dainty white fingers
painted upon the canvas. Then she whispered, "Good-
bye, Mamma! good-bye!" Then she went on.
A short distance down the hall she paused before a
seldom-opened door. It had been her mother's cham-
ber, and Elizabeth had been within it only a very few
times when the housekeeper had taken her there, and
had stayed — oh; so short a time! Now something
within her seemed to say, "Go in: Nurse is asleep, no
one will know. What is the harm?" A moment of
indecision, then she softly opened the door.
The dainty room was as it had been — the dressing
table with all its silver, the writing desk, and the
bureau, exactly as the mistress had left them. Glanc-
ing about,, the child's eye fell presently upon a huge
oaken chest in a small room adjoining, and wondering
what it contained, she went to it, raised the lid, and
peered cautiously within. In the dim light she saw a
mass of shining white satin, now become somewhat
yellow because of the years it had lain there untouched.
With the utmost care she lifted it out, and holding it
up, smoothed out the folds caressingly. "Why,"
thought she, "this was the very dress Mamma has on
in the picture in the hall ! What a treasure!" So en-
raptured was she in admiring the beautiful flowers
embroidered in gold upon the bodice that she wholly
forgot that she was doing wrong, and only when she
heard a step behind her did she remember that she was
on forbidden ground.
"Miss Elizabeth, what are you doing?"
The child turned with frightened eyes toward her
nurse, who, looking for her charge, had discovered
the open door and had thus found her just as she was
unfastening her dress.
"Oh, Sarah," she said pleadingly, "won't you please
let me put this on — just for a moment?"
A rebuke had risen to the lips of the nursemaid, but
the entreating look in the child's tearful eyes softened
her heart. The housekeeper was away and the master
not expected home that night; so what was the harm
of letting the poor baby have a little pleasure? She
should try on the dress if she liked. Then smiling
kindly at Elizabeth's delight at being allowed to "dress
up" in her mother's gown, she took off the plain little
frock, slipped the shining satin over the small head,
and fastened the old-fashioned waist. Another might
have smiled at the childish shoulders and bare arms —
for the dress was a ball-gown, cut low and with only
mere suggestions of sleeves — but Elizabeth, viewing
herself in the mirror, thought herself quite the little
lady, though of a year long gone by. Sarah unbraided
the thick tresses and coiled them high upon the proud
little head, then stepped back to view the result of her
work. As she did so, Elizabeth turned, and said smil-
ing, "Now, how do I look?"
The nurse impulsively ran to her, clasped her tight
in her arms, and cried, "You look just like the young
mistress! Oh, if your father could only see you
Unused to such bursts of affection, the little girl was
rather startled at first, then with an unaccustomed ring
of happiness in her voice said, "Do I really, truly, look
like Mamma? Come, let's go down into the drawing-
room where the big mirror is, and I will play that I am
Mamma, and you may be my maid. Won't that be
Without awaiting an answer, she daintily gathered
up the folds of her over-long skirt, and walked sedately
down the hall and thence down the broad staircase .
into the brightly lighted hall below. There stood the
old negro butler, whose eyes fairly popped out of his
head as he gazed astonished at the little lady descend-
ing the stairs.
"Good Lawd hab mussy on a po' sinneh!" he gasped;
"but if dat ain't de young Missus, den I don't be
Sarah bade him open the drawing-room doors, that
Miss Elizabeth might go in and see herself in the big
mirror, and old Henry did so, with as much pomp and
ceremony as he had ever used in announcing the ar-
rival of the most distinguished guests of the house.
Elizabeth laughed in pure delight as she stepped in
childish attempt at majesty over the threshold, and
standing before the huge mirror at one end of the room,
bowed to the radiant image before her. Then to and
fro she went before its magic surface, glancing now in
the great glass, now over her shoulder to see the sweep
of the long, embroidered train.
But such luxury was not to be enjoyed long; for,
fearful lest the housekeeper return and find them here,
Sarah very soon bade Elizabeth come upstairs and take
off the gown, and reluctantly throwing a farewell kiss
to the little lady in the mirror, the child followed her
nurse, who preceded her up the stairs. Passing the
library, however, Elizabeth stopped a moment to
glance into the dimly lighted room, when what was her
surprise to see there her father, seated in the big
leather arm-chair before the fire, and gazing with un-
seeing eyes into the flames. He looked so tired and
sad that, although her first impulse was to flee, his
little daughter was possessed by a strong desire to com-
fort him, and advancing a step into the room, she said
softly, "Good evening, Papa!" Her father raised his
head from his hand, and glanced carelessly toward her.
When the little vision in white met his eye, he rose
suddenly with a start from his chair, then paused mo-
tionless, leaning heavily upon the leather arms. On
came the child, smiling, then stopped in fright as she
saw his dazed look.
"Alicia!" The name of his dead wife came in a gasp
from his lips, and he held out his arms. Then he
clasped the trembling little form to his breast in con-
vulsive tenderness, whispering brokenly, "My darling!
Frightened at this unexplained action, yet pitying
the trouble she could not understand, the child lifted a
trembling little hand, and patted the face bending over
her. "Papa! Papa! Don't feel so!" she said. "It's
only Elizabeth. Papa! — dear papa!"
"Elizabeth — Elizabeth," he repeated hesitatingly, as
he began to realize that this was only a dream, that his
adored young wife had not returned to him, as he had
at first believed. Then he held the child out at arms'
length where the light of the fire fell full upon her face,
and said in a half whisper, "I thought you were your
mother! It startled me." Why had he never noticed
before, he wondered, how much the little one resembled
her mother — the same hair! the very same ruddy
"I'm sorry," faltered the child. "I didn't mean to
startle you. I won't do it again," and she involun-
tarily shrank from him. The action, slight as it was,
gave him keen pain. His child was afraid of him — her
own father! With lightning rapidity, conscience ac-
cused him. What love had he ever shown her? What
had he ever done to inspire her confidence? Alas,
little! But suddenly, unaccountably, the love of his
little girl now filled his heart, and taking her into his
arms he kissed the quivering lips.
"It is all right, darling. Don't be frightened," he
said, his eyes moist. Then he sat down before the fire
still clasping her, lost in the wonder of her new happi-
ness, in his arms. Elizabeth had found her father, and
he had found his child.

Once upon a stormy, dreary winter's day, when I was
Accidentally I found a volume of peculiar lore;
It was a book wherein there dwell fond memories of old
I opened it and bade it tell the records of my school-

Those school-days long since past and o'er.
But soon, our pleasure to enhance, there came the New

'Twas there, by an unlucky chance, my simple party
gown I tore.
The evening passed in fun and glee — so clearly it comes
back to me,
When on this open page I see the list of names my
Distinguished names my program bore!
Ah, distinctly I recall that it was in the early fall;
I had bidden each and all my friends farewell, my
heart full sore.
How my brain was whirling, reeling, with a sinking
Suddenly o'er heart-strings stealing as I reached
Lasell's front door!
That Fearful, Gruesome, Big Front Door!
And on another page — but hush ! dare I make mention
of my "Crush"?
How pulse would beat and cheek would flush when-
e'er on me her eyes she'd lower —
How if, perchance, she deigned to speak, I lived in bliss
for full a week,
And no companion cared to seek save her whom once
I did adore!
So short a time I did adore!

WE speak of "our school," not as of "our house,"
with a sense of possession; we name "our
school," not as "our Church," an expression
of cult or sect; we recall "our school," not as a memory
of books and teachers, of work days and vacations, for
it is ever "our school," "our Alma Mater," the inspira-
tion of that which, in the citizen, is called patriotism,
and, in the alumnus and scholar, school spirit. Our
school is the common ground which nurtures many
lasting friendships. It is the refiner's caldron into
which go many elements that, freed from alloy, become
the pure metal — the loyal student body.
This spirit will not be analyzed, it will not be de-
scribed, but look where you will, you find it. It is the
feeling of the alienist for his country, the soldier for his
flag, the child for his parent, and the missionary for his
Cross. None of these serve two masters, nor can the
possessor of this great school spirit. He is not one who
has gone from this school to that, but he is the loyal
student who, beginning, has struggled to the end,
How memories of school and classmates draw men
and women from far and near back to the old familiar
scenes. How they stir within them a pride for the
achievements of the undergraduates, for does not his
success belong to his class, his school, and, hence the
alumni? Who will not claim his share of it? When
has a game been won that the victory did not cause
every true alumnus from the Atlantic to the Pacific to
raise his hat in air, and shout for joy, and, shall we say,
It is not, however, in enthusiasm alone that an
alumnus shows his loyalty. Look at that beautiful
picture on the wall; search the shelves of the library
for the rare volumes which. enrich it; read the inscrip-
tions upon the handsome and stately buildings lining
the campus — all are the gifts of alumni or classes.
How they testify in silence, far more eloquent than
words, to a deep and abiding affection.
The results of this splendid attribute are, however,
more than mere enthusiasm and lore, priceless as these
may be; they are greater than any material gifts, no
matter how costly. The product they are of a seed
which fell on good ground, growing and flourishing till
the soil from whence it sprung was transformed. And,
as the grain is necessary to the community, so is the
fruit of this seed indispensable to the institution where-
in it was fostered. Counted among its most valuable
assets, it is the very foundation of success and progress.
Year after year this is evinced as a father, a mother,
brings back a son or daughter to the old school. They
pass down the familiar walks, memories surging fast
within, and instruction mingles with recollection:
"That is the house where I lived." "By that third
window stood my desk." "In this house we made
candy, unknown to the Faculty, but don't you do it."
"This great elm has sprung from the little sapling my
This, then, is school spirit, in part. We know not
all of it, nor yet half, but we are blind indeed who can
not see it between the lines of letters from "old girls."
We are dense if we do not discern it in the future of our
own lives when, separated to the four corners of the
earth, memory's eye will strain back to this dear old
building, these elms and chestnuts, these walls and
walks, these duties, failures, and achievements, these
friends, and this Our School.

In future wanderings round the world,
Visiting places remote, perhaps,
No more alluring place you'll find
Than Karandon the Fair, on all the maps.
This is the home here at Lasell,
Where twelve congenial comrades dwell.
Our Principal lives also here
With his sweet wife and winsome babies dear.
It stands upon a little hill,
Which every day with ready will
We climb, for porch, for walk, for wall,
By us are loved, yes loved, by one and all.
Not one who lives in this dear place
Ever wears a discontented face;
For she is conscious of the fact,
That Karandon has nothing to be lacked.
The thoughts of it will e'er be sweet,
And the parties, and good things to eat
We will not forget, nor the cheer
Of our hostess, making joy appear.
Days will pass, years will pass, and yet —
We'll never, no never, we say, forget
The grand old times and strenuous, too,
Which we had this year, Karandon, in you.

Dear Cushman, our Hall of Fame,
How pleasant the sound of your name —
It reminds us of nights filled with rarest delights;
To live here is all the girls' aim.
The larks that we have over here,
With none can compare, far or near —
For think of the girls— as lively as squirrels,
Who make the halls ring with good cheer.
Of the corridors now I must speak;
At their names, tho', I fear you will shriek.
"Angel Row" you all know,
But hark! listen! and lo!
What think you of "Devils' Retreat"?
There'll be many and many a year
That we'll think of the times we've had here.
So come one and all, be you great or small,
And give us a rousing good cheer.

When first we came to dear Lasell
From homes so far away,
We knew not where we were to dwell
Among the buildings gay.
And when we found 'twas Carter Hall
With rooms so bright and cheery,
We carried banners, pictures — all —
Until we sank down, weary.
So Carter Hall became our home,
And often we did say :
"To this fair spot we'll e'er be true,
Forever and a day."
Oh, there we spent some merry days
With the girls so full of fun —
The finest girls in many ways,
Here's a health to every one!
And now when scattered far and wide,
Our happy school days o'er,
Thoughts of Lasell will never fade —
We cherish them more and more.
As out into the world we go,
Each to a different call,
Our memories fly back many times
To our home in Carter Hall.

AS every one at the present day believes strongly
in and encourages Athletics, so here at Lasell
the instructors forward the interest in it, and
most all the students take part in some one of its
branches. In the spring and autumn the school work
is made lighter, enabling us to spend more time on
outdoor sports, and from the happy, strong, healthy-
looking faces of our girls, one could tell they are from
Lasell, as Lasell is well known for its athletics.
The events that take place are — Canoe Race, Tennis
Field Day and Drill, the canoe race being without
doubt the most picturesque. We have the beautiful
Charles River not six blocks from the school where we
canoe, beginning as early in spring as possible until
June, and again in September, when we return from
our summer vacation, till the latter part of October.
In the fall, the gymnasium teacher takes parties of
girls who intend trying for the crew out in the big war
canoes (so as to get some idea of the work each one
does). Then in spring the girls wishing to make the
crew, take a physical examination, and those passing-
it are put on, there being twenty-seven in all, with a
few substitutes. There are three war canoes, each
seating nine persons, with a captain, the steerer, in
each one. The girls practice afternoons, before break-
fast and sometimes after dinner in the long spring
evenings. The race comes off usually the week before
Commencement and great excitement reigns through-
out the school on that eventful day. Leaving the
school early in the morning we paddle down the river
to the race-course. The students wishing to watch, go
in single canoes, and others in launches,, each bearing
the colors of the crew she wishes to win. The course
is three-quarters of a mile long against current and a
hard and exciting pull it is, but it is well worth it for
the winning crew is rewarded with white sweaters on
which is a large blue L. Each set of nine girls has its
uniform sailor blouse and white skirt and to a looker-on
at the finish it is a very pretty sight indeed to see these
three canoes coming, quite close together usually, the
members in each keeping time with their stroke.
About half way down the course, the ones at the win-
ning place can see the position of the three boats, and
then as they come on, one falls behind, another gains,
and so on, changing places, until the end is reached,
and one boat, perhaps not the one which seemed ahead
before, comes in first. Every one is shouting and
calling from one to another, and from the uproar a
stranger passing by might think it some holiday
The athletic spirit at Lasell prompted at the begin-
ning of the school year a tennis tournament. There
were six sets of girls, two in a set, who played. The
winners of each set then played together, and so on,
until one girl came out champion. The new girls found
that Lasell stood for active athletics and the way in
which they entered into them promises great things for
the spring. We have three very good tennis courts,
and these are occupied most of the time. Many do not
play tennis at all when they first come, but they soon
get into the spirit and are able to play fairly well at the
close of school. The fall tournament is a sort of pre-
paratory work for the large one in spring, for it is then
that the best players come forth and give us a fine,
exciting game. Every year there are many splendid
During the winter months, besides our regular work
in gymnasium, we have preparatory work for Field
Day, which comes off the end week of school. This
sport has more or less of class spirit in it, because after
the individual winners are announced, the winnings of
each class are given out, and naturally each girl wants
her class to come out ahead so she does her best in
everything attempted. The different things done are
— the high jump, vaulting, broad jump, running hop-
step and a jump, putting the shot, and relay race.
The latter is done regardless of class and the best run-
ners in school are selected for it. Not only does this
class spirit encourage girls to do their best, but also the
thought of a sweater with class numerals, an L or a
bar, for it is quite an honor to have one of these. Be-
fore this year we played basket-ball in the spring only
and then not much was made of it, but this year we
have begun the playing of indoor basket-ball and it is
hoped that by spring we will have fairly good teams,
if not class, then teams picked from the whole school.
Last of the Athletics, but certainly not the least, is
drill. This is one which all the students have to take
part in, unless excused by the doctor. It is begun in
the fall and continued once a week till Drill Day in
June. We are drilled by Lieutenant Ranlet of Boston,
until he has a chance to select the captains for the
four companies A, B, C, and D, who take command
of the company to which each is assigned, with Lieu-
tenant Ranlet acting as instructor. Ours is the regu-
lar military drill, having the same officers, major,
adjutant, captains, lieutenants, sergeants and cor-
porals. We have uniform suits, made as much as
possible like the original costume, and wooden guns
are carried by all privates and officers below the lieu-
tenants, and those above carry swords. The part of
the campus on which we drill is divided into company
streets and on Drill Day each of these is decorated with
its colors, making the yard very attractive. A recep-
tion is held in the parlors for Lieutenant Ranlet and
his military friends before drill begins. When the bell
sounds each company takes its place and all is made
ready. At different intervals the military band plays,
and the bugler gives the commands. The companies
drill separately for about twenty minutes and the
judges follow closely, noting all errors. After the
three have drilled, the Manual of Arms competition
is held. All those wishing to try for this prize form in
a line and receive a number, to be fastened on their
waists, enabling the judges to decide which ones are
competent. The line marches on to the drilling ground
and receives the commands from some higher officer
and those failing to come up to the standard are asked
to drop out, until the winner gains the point. The
prizes are awarded by one of the judges to the winning
company and the winner of the Manual of Arms.
After all this has been seen, to the enjoyment of many
people, we all retire to the dining room and partake of
an appetizing dinner, followed by speeches.

THE Lasell Glee Club occupies an important posi-

organization in 1901 by Miss Bates, this society
has been successful in possessing members who not only
have excellent voices, but who are interested enough to
spend their time and best efforts in rendering the finest
music for the pleasure and benefit of the Seminary.
The club is now under the leadership of Miss Good-
rich, one of the vocal teachers. Under her wise direc-
tion a schedule of study for the year is arranged and the
course is followed with much interest during the weekly
practice. The result of this systematic training is
noted first during the year at the Christmas vespers,
which, according to custom, is led by the club girls.
Dressed in white, they march in, singing Leighten's
joyous processional, "Herald Angels," and throughout
the evening render a program of such beautiful Christ-
mas music that this of all the other services is loved
best by the school. Among the numbers given this
year were Handel's "Holy Art Thou" and "The Guest
of the Three Kings" by Noble.
The Glee Club Spring Concert is always anticipated
as being a most delightful social occasion as well
as the chief concert of the year. For at that time
the campus with its fresh verdure is so beautiful that
the girls take this opportunity to invite many of their
friends to see Lasell at its best. The guests are
received in the parlors by a reception committee
and afterwards a supper is served them in the
The concert itself is given in the gymnasium and the
program consists of miscellaneous music — a variety
always being enjoyable for every one. As yet we do
not know exactly what music will be given, but we feel
certain that the selections will be excellent and will
also be finely rendered.

THE work of the Lasell Dramatic Club is designed
to develop its members physically, as well as
mentally and artistically, through the study and
interpretation of the best dramas which it is possible for
them to present. Especial attention is paid to grace-
ful and correct carriage and movement — the purpose
being to obtain a natural rather than a studied bodily
poise and manner. Since the best expression of a lit-
erary work is the direct result of having grasped and
felt the thought of the writer, it can not be secured
merely by imitating tones of voice and applying ges-
tures suitable to the outward interpretation of lines.
This better method the club aims to apply to the best
of its ability in all of its study; and the benefit obtained
from it, if applied to everyday life, is extremely helpful
in securing an ease of manner which is always desirable
and not always obtained; in developing the speaking
voice; and in cultivating clearness of thought and a
better appreciation of good literature.
Mrs. Martin, the teacher of Expression in the school,
acts as the adviser of the club in selecting the plays
best suited for its presentation, and in choosing and
coaching the characters for the casts.
The club usually superintends some entertainment on
the evening of Washington's Birthday, and, during the
latter part of the February term it gives a play, sup-
posed to represent its best work. Last year at that
time "King Rene's Daughter" was presented, and in
December this year, two attractive short comedies,
"The Kleptomaniac" and "The Nettle" were success-
fully played before the school. At present certain of
the members are busy preparing "The Rivals," which
they expect to produce during the early part of
(Tune— "Amici"— Cornell Song)
Bound firm by a bond unbroken,
Bright school days are quickly past,
Love for old Lasell,
Take we now a pledge outspoken
E'er to guard her well.
Alma Mater, Fidelitas,
Pledge, girls, for loyalty;
Sing it now before we part,
We'll ever faithful be.
Enjoy them while we may;
Memory still shall them outlast,
When we are far away.

ALL of the art students at Lasell are entitled to
membership in the Sigma Sigma Society,
which, founded by Miss Mulliken, the Art
teacher, is primarily an organization to promote "jolly
good fellowship" among the studio girls. As this is a
secret society, very little can be found out concerning it,
except that, as we all know, in the early part of the fall
term mysterious notes are received by all members-to-
be among the new girls, bidding them on a certain
evening to come in simple attire and humble in spirit,
to the studio. We only know that they have an initia-
tion and afterwards a spread, designed to act as oil on
troubled waters. But one who has noted the appear-
ance of returning victims can not help being impressed
with the idea that a society whose membership is so
much sought for that applicants will cheerfully undergo
all sorts of trying circumstances to win it, must indeed
be worth while.
The work of this society at least is worth while, for
the members are always willing and glad to render
their services to the school paper or the year book; and
whenever a play or other entertainment is to be given,
all interesting particulars concerning it are furnished by
posters cleverly designed and painted by these same girls.
It is always interesting to examine the work of the
club in the drawings, paintings, and arts-and-crafts
work, which are exhibited in the studio during Com-
THE Lasell Missionary Society has a membership
of practically all of the students, each of whom
pledges a weekly due of five cents or more. This
sum, together with that raised at our annual lawn fes-
tival, is then divided among several domestic and foreign
missionary enterprises in which Lasell is interested.
Recently word was received from India, saying that
Caroline Lasell, the orphan, whom we have helped, to
support in one of the missions there, has lately married
and so no longer needs our assistance; but another
bright little girl has been chosen to have our name and
to be educated with our help. The society also aids in
the maintenance of the Lasell Mission School in India,
the work of Mrs. Emma Barnum Briggs, in Luilkey,
and has an interest in the International Institute for
Girls in Spain. A part of our funds assists the work of
the deaconesses and the Frances E. Willard Settlement
work, in Boston during the holiday time. We are glad,
also, to pledge some help to the Floating Hospital and
other home charities.

THE Lasell Christian Endeavor Society was organ-
ized in 1889 by Dr. Francis E. Clark, the father
of this world-wide movement'; and since then
its influence for good over the school has steadily in-
creased. The weekly meetings are well attended and
especial pains are taken to make them interesting and
helpful to the students.

(Tune— "My Wife's Gone to the Country")
Oh, "We are well and happy!" To be "refined and buoyant,"
Hooray! hooray! And strong, alert and true —
For Mrs. Martin's with us — "Awake in mind and body,"
She's here most every day. And straight of shoulder, too.
Oh, "we are tall and handsome"— And if we're truly all this,
That's what the people say. And never make a fuss
And "something good has surely come," "The good we give out to the world
To make us bright and gay. Will e'er come back to us."
"Build thee more stately mansions,
My soul, my soul" —
"Now say it with some feeling, girls;
Don't stand there like a pole."
"Heads high! and lift your chests up,
On this bright sunny day;
And say with voices 'sweet and low,'
Away cares — away."
